Super Eagles and Napoli red-hot striker Victor Osimhen has been urged to sign for Manchester United, by award-nominated Nigerian hip-hop star Crayon, who reached out to him on social media.
Crayon, who has more than 470,000 followers on Twitter and 780,000 on Instagram urged Osimhen to make the move to Manchester United in the summer once he has won the title with Napoli.
He wrote: “How my bro! Osi nlaaaa! Man U dey finds you!!! Abeg come to Man U this summer after you win Serie A! Come collect big 9!!!”
Crayon has been nominated for three Sound City MVP Africa awards and hours after his message to Osimhen, the striker replied to his countryman, responding to one of his music videos, rather than the United message.
He wrote simply “Crayway!!! Omo ope”, showing respect for his work in return, while the musician responded by lauding him “Best striker in da world”.
This week Fabrizio Romano warned that Osimhen would likely cost Manchester United a club-record fee, higher than the £89 million spent on Paul Pogba in 2016
Romano said: “My personal opinion is that Napoli will not accept anything less than £105m/£115m.”
